James Nitties didn't just enter the annual Mustache Madness contest at the Utah Championship this week. He went all in.
 
Nitties – who also won the title in 2012 – faced off against 13 of his fellow Web.com Tour challengers. But, really, none of them had a chance as he raised his game with his "Mo-tach" – a thick black ribbon that wraps almost completely around his head and winds up in a Mohawk.
 
"This is inspired by the fact everyone keeps asking me what I'm going to do to top what I previously did" I 2012," Nitties said. "So I figured the best thing a man could do is destroy his haircut and his personal life in the going."
 
 
Not surprising given its complexity, creating the astonishing accoutrement was a two-person job. Nitties got a barber to shave in the Mohawk and shape up his actual facial hair, and I can't help but wonder if she put a picture of it up on her wall.
 
No word on how long Nitties will do the 'do. But I suspect he'll be extra-glad to don his cap for the first round on Thursday.
